Scrooge & Company
Berkshire Holiday shows thru Dec 31
In the Berkshires, the holidays bring familiar favorites.

Shakespeare & Company brings It’s a Wonderful Life onto the stage as a radio play (Dec 15-18), and the Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center will screen Frank Capra’s classic 1946 film, It’s a Wonderful Life, starring James Stewart, Donna Reed, and Lionel Barrymore (Dec 23, 7 p.m., free).
Don’t miss the Festival of Trees, which returns to the Berkshire Museum with a tribute to classic films (through Dec 31).
